Studs Turkel Makes Music, Caroline Rose Switches Genres and More
By Grace Lichtenstein, Guest Column
11:03AM / Wednesday, July 17, 2019

A wonderful pops and dance week in the Berkshires is upon us. There is an original musical based on Studs Terkel's amazing oral history "Working," folk and pop acts at the highest level, Mark Morris at the Pillow, and twilight jazz on Edith Wharton's terrace. The pluses outweigh the minuses — the main minus being Patti Lupone's cancellation at the Mahaiwe. (She's still recuperating from hip replacement surgery, according to an announcement.) Lupone promises to reschedule.

"Working: A Musical" is based on Studs Terkel's brilliant collection of interviews chronicling the lives of ordinary Americans. It was first produced

Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:48AM / Wednesday, July 17, 2019

In reality, though, if you have a family, you can probably benefit from estate planning, whatever your asset level. And you may well find that a comprehensive estate plan can help you answer some questions you may find unsettling – or even worrisome.

Here are a few of these questions:

* What will happen to my children? With luck, you (and your co-parent, if you have one) will be alive and well at least until your children reach the age of majority (either 18 or 21, depending on where you

HANCOCK, Mass. — During the American Revolution, famed French general the Marquis de Lafayette played a significant role as an ally of the rebellious colonies.   So much so that President James Monroe invited him on a farewell tour of the nation in 1824, celebrating the country's 50th birthday.   Lafayette traveled all 24 of the United States, including going directly across the Berkshires on his way to Boston.   Now, the Berkshires have recognized his contributions by designating the trail he took from Hancock to Hinsdale on his way back Boston with an official

Let's Reverse the Rural Physician Shortage
By Lia Spiliotes,
10:17AM / Monday, July 15, 2019

Across the nation, unequal access to health care raises urgent, pressing problems for individual and community health. For rural and underserved communities, the most urgent challenge for patients is our shrinking supply of primary care physicians.

Data show that by 2030, the United States will face a primary care physician shortfall as high as 49,300. Only 25 percent of medical school graduates enter the primary care field; many head straight to higher-paid medical specialties.

In rural regions, this looming physician shortage is already hurting patients. A new poll by Harvard, NPR, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that one-quarter of those surveyed had trouble accessing

'Yesterday': All Over Again
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
09:32PM / Friday, July 12, 2019
Having experienced the progressive, enlightened and somewhat earth-shaking era of the 1960s, I figured we good citizens had given at the office, that we were forever vaccinated with Pepperland dust and therefore protected from the ignominious cloud currently darkening our horizons. We just can't go back to the Middle Ages. I'd look terrible in a monk habit.    So now, like an army regiment pinned down by a scurrilous enemy, waiting for the cavalry of righteous indignation to return America to its senses, I look for signs and metaphors that this globe might soon be put back on its axis. If it comes in the form of an entertaining film like director Danny Boyle's
